“So what? Everyone likes sugar.”
We all NEED a little sugar in our diet. A little sugar isn’t going to hurt you. Well, there lies the issue. What is the BIG DEAL?
Natural sugars in moderation are necessary for body functioning in a healthy and natural way. However, many of us are at the toxic level of ADDED sugar and consume more than we should in a month, every single day. I had to come to terms with the temporary pleasures that wreck MAJOR havoc on my health. Not to mention the GMO’s and refining process that produce toxins.
TAKE THE CHALLENGE
Take the time today to treat yourself. However, instead of sugar, swap out one of your regular choices with honey, molasses, stevia, agave or a fruit. Be cautious here as these are still sugars and less is needed for sweetness. Here is how sugar is ranked.
Maybe this means taking something you enjoy and giving it a makeover and substituting ingredients. It is important to use less of the alternative sugar.
Be careful not to fall into looking for sugar-free as an alternative. There are many unsafe alternatives that are as bad or worse than added sugar.
Use less sugar alternatives as they are even considered questionable by some as some healthy sugars that can kill you.
